Besides being a pleasurable activity, did you know that regular sex can help prevent a variety of health issues?
The common cold. Perhaps everyone’s favorite home remedy should change from Vick’s Vapor Rub to a quick roll in the hay. Sex helps increase the immune system making it easier for the body to attack cold germs. The defensive white blood cells (phagocytes) double in production after orgasm.
High blood pressure. Semen helps lower blood pressure in women. Semen is especially good in warding off high blood pressure that can occur during pregnancy.
Pain. The increase in endorphins helps alleviate any type of pain, from headaches to cramps.
Incontinence. Sex works out your Kegel muscles which are responsible for controlling urine flow.
Increase muscle and bone strength. Testosterone is released every time you have sex and this helps improve muscle tone and bone strength.
Hangovers. Sex will boost your Oxytocin levels which helps flush out toxins from your body and relieve those hangover blues.
Arthritis. Sex can reduce the inflammation and swelling associated with arthritis.
